Bayer to set up European wheat centre

Bayer CropScience is to establish its European wheat breeding centre at Gatersleben, Germany. Besides developing varieties for the central European market, the centre will also co-ordinate all of the company's wheat-breeding activities in Europe. The facility will employ up to 40 full-time employees when established. It will be part of Bayer's global network of wheat-breeding stations. Another centre focused on North America is being set up in the US near Lincoln, Nebraska, the company reveals. Additional stations are planned in Europe and Australia with further expansion in Asia and Latin America in the medium term. A network of alliances with leading international research institutions is also being formed to apply the latest advancements in plant biotechnology to wheat research and breeding and thus accelerate variety development process, Bayer says.
